Sugar Snap Pea, Radish and Mozzarella Salad

On Sunday, it was an absolute of a pearler of a day. The sun was shining, it was actually hot and the braai was out. Doug and I prepared a delicious peri-peri chicken for my family for a late Sunday lunch. Watch this space – the recipe will come soon! So delicious.

To compliment the spicy, smokey main, I wanted to have a crunchy, cool and fresh side. The sugar snaps are the perfect crunch, complimented by the cool and soft mozzarella. Top with avo and radishes and a drizzle of lemon and olive oil, you have the perfect summer salad (in winter haha).  The salad went down a treat with the chicken, and my brothers even threw out a compliment!
